4 August update: We’re deeply sorry to announce Paloma Faith has been forced to cancel her performance at tonight’s Abbey Extravaganza.
Having been seen by a doctor backstage at today’s event, Paloma has been diagnosed with acute laryngitis and been declared unfit to perform. She is incredibly disappointed to have to withdraw and sends her sincere apologies.
Despite the extremely late notice, we’re very pleased to have been able to secure a replacement headliner. The acclaimed singer-songwriter Tom Odell is currently en route to the site by helicopter. We hope you will extend him a very warm welcome.
UPDATE: Tickets have now Sold Out!
We’re very pleased to announce that the amazing Paloma Faith will headline this year’s Glastonbury Abbey Extravaganza, on Saturday 4th August 2018.
Says Michael Eavis: “What makes the Extravaganza so special is the all-round experience – where else would you have a backdrop as stunning or as historic as the ruins of Glastonbury Abbey? It really is a wonderful event for all those who come as well as being fabulous for the town, residents and local businesses. With the weather currently so cold – isn’t it good to be looking forward to the summer and a brilliant performer who will give one of the finest shows we could wish for?”
Paloma also sent a message – she says: “Glastonbury has a special place in my heart, I was blown away by the crowd and the atmosphere when I performed on the Pyramid Stage at the Festival. I’m really looking forward to seeing the town again and being at the Abbey. The Extravaganza will be an extraordinary experience, particularly given it’s in such a historic setting. I am sure it will be a night to remember!”
